Welcome to our little slice of the Internet. We’re happy you stopped by.
You may be asking yourself why the need for men’s ministry. I mean, why is God’s ministry assigned a gender… or an age group… or any other distinguishing characteristic? Shouldn’t we all be in ministry together?
Well, yes and no.
In our fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20), we recognize that adult men have different life struggles than women, young teens, or even seniors. We face different hurdles, carry different responsibilities, and respond differently to the challenges laid before us. So, we purposefully create a safe environment for men to fellowship, establish relationships with each other, share our experiences, and grow spiritually as we strengthen our walk as disciples.
At First Baptist Church of Vacaville, the mission of the Men’s Ministry is Bringing Men Closer to God. We actively pursue strong relationships between men and God. We believe that it strengthens ourselves, our families, our churches, and our communities when we have a deep and personal relationship with Jesus.
That doesn’t downplay the role of women; it recognizes that men have been given a different set of responsibilities within the context of our families (Ephesians 5:21-33). Christ gave His life for the church and men are called to love their wives “as Christ loved the church.” That’s an awesome responsibility!
Through the FBCVV Men’s Ministry, you will grow relationally with other men… other Christian brothers who can empathize with where you are and lovingly help you grow. In the process, you will experience God on a whole new level.
This is an open invitation to all men 18 and above. Join us.
Whether you’re exploring Christianity from the outside or you were raised as a Christian, we invite you to come. All of us have room to grow.
If you’ve been hurt by a church or religion in the past and aren’t comfortable sitting in a Sunday service, please come. This is a small group environment where we promise to make you feel safe and welcome. We want to get to know you and help you.
You do not need to be a church member to join us. You don’t even need to be a Christian.
You don’t have to put anything in the offering plate. In fact, if you need assistance, we can help you find the resources.
There are no excuses. Just come. We can’t wait to meet you.
Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts – Check the church calendar for specific dates/times. The Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts are normally held on the second Saturday of the month at 8:00 AM in the FBCVV Family Life Center (just follow the smell of bacon and sausage… you’ll find us). The breakfast is free (we ask for a nominal donation to cover the cost of the food, but it’s not required and we’re more than happy to feed you). We’ll break bread together, grow closer with each other, and share a Word from the Bible.
Men’s Retreat – The date is not yet set for 2017, however, we normally hold our retreat in October. We’ll announce dates as the event is calendared. This is a weekend event held in the mountains. It’s a way for us to leave the stresses of everyday life behind and focus on our Lord Jesus Christ for an entire weekend. It’s a spiritual recharging that you won’t soon forget.
Other Events – The FBCVV Men’s Ministry will sponsor events throughout the year, either in partnership with other ministries or on our own. Look for announcements as events are planned.
